Norway | 17 minutes | 2012 | English, Norwegian and Spanish

We follow the Norwegian Martin and his pregnant Spanish girl- friend, Lucia, during their first 15 minutes on Norwegian soil, observing Lucia’s first encounter with this new culture and her in‐laws. It’s a car trip full of social tensions, expectations and misunderstandings. Brilliant observational comedy done in one shot.
